Living Pain Free Today!
I’m busy here at the office, but I wanted to take the time to send you this email.Here is the list of the Top TenHealthiest Foods in my opinion.
Make sure you print this off and SAVE IT.
The “King” of health vegetables. Loaded with vitamins such as
B-6,A, folic acid, and K also full of minerals like potassium
and calcium. Broccoli also has unique cancer-fighting properties, activated
by phytochemicals indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane. It’s great RAW or steamed.
Combine the warm nutty flavor of flaxseeds with a generous amount
of omega-3 fatty acids and you have a health food superstar. Sprinkle them on cereal in the morning and enjoy the healthybenefits they provide as shown in many studies including:
* Lowering total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the Bad
* May also help lower blood triglyceride and blood pressure.
* Keep platelets from becoming sticky therefore reducing the risk
of a heart attack.
* Lignan metabolites can bind to estrogen receptors, this may help
the onset of estrogen-stimulated breast cancer.
This is a good one. Many studies support the benefits of adding
green tea to your diet. Some studies show it has cancer risk reducing
properties, and a potential in also decreasing incidence of stroke and
heart disease.Make it habit to switch from regular black tea to green tea.
Walnuts are rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts are
the first food that the FDA allowed to make this claim “Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 oz of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”
Here’s something else you ought to know.
Eat a lot of them and you’ll curb your appetite. And when you curb your appetite, you lose weight.
Salmon is another healthy food superstar because it is low in
calories, saturated fat, and is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids
and protein. Research studies have shown anti-inflammatory and
cancer prevention properties and a key role in diabetes and
Alzheimer’s prevention plus cardiovascular benefits.
So eat it and you’ll lose weight.
If you are looking for an antioxidant punch look no further then the blueberry. This fruit has the highest level of antioxidants among fruits. Studies have shown that blueberries can help in lowering cholesterol, reducing diabetes risk, and even slowing down the aging process.
When I found that out, I became a blueberry advocate. I don’t want to age any faster than I have to so I love blueberries. Combine that with improving motor skills and urinary and vision health and you have another top 10 pick.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and may reduce cancer risk and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s. Studies have shown that cinnamon can help lower cholesterol and also stabilize blood sugar. Ginger looks promising for cancer prevention and is anti-inflammatory. I don’t know about you, but when I use this on chicken, it makes it oh so good to eat.
Research on pomegranate has shown amazing health benefits including
reducing heart disease risk, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, and reducing the risk of certain types of cancer. I try and drink at least 2 ounces of this juice per day.
Believe it or not dark chocolate actually makes my top 10 list because of recent studies which show benefits to our cardiovascular system as well as cancer-protective properties and mood-enhancing benefits. Just remember to consume in moderation. When I buy this,I get the 90% DARK CHOCOLATE bars, not the candy bars.
Honey has many healing properties and research has shown that honey
has a role in digestive health as well anti-bacterial and anti-viral
effects. Stay healthy and make sure you pass this email on to your friends and family. I want to help as many people as I can.
Thank you for being a patient. You do mean a lot to me.
